We propose a semiparametric method for the analysis of masked-cause failure data that are also subject to a cure. We present estimators for the failure time distribution, the cure rate, and the covariate effect on each of these, assuming a proportional hazards cure model for the time to event of interest and we use the expectation-maximization algorithm to conduct the likelihood maximization. The method is applied to data from a breast cancer clinical trial.
